Chapter 77: Meeting Yun Hua Again (2)
“Even if there is a mission reward, shouldn’t there be a process to upgrade? Even if ten seconds passed, I could say that I have a talent for cultivation…However, it takes less than a second? In such a vast immortal-devil mainland, tell me who can break through the realms as easily as just hiccuping?”
The system didn’t dare to say a word and pretended to act dead.
However, Ye Yu was unable to play along. She was exposed under Xuan Yi’s questioning gaze right now.
Xuan Yi knitted his eyebrows and asked, “Your essence qi seems to be fluctuating?”
Ye Yu knew that she couldn’t hide from him and if she tried to lie to him, he would probably only just pretend to believe her on the surface. He will definitely have more questions.
Therefore, she smiled and said, “Mhm, there is an improvement to my cultivation…I upgraded from the Infant Realm to the Youth Realm.”
Towards the end, the light words seemed to be forced out.
“…” The system continued to act dead.
“Oh, it’s easy to upgrade from realms like this.” Xuan Yi’s gaze turned darker and more playful, but he had a faint expression on. “Sister Ye Yu, you must have a talent in cultivation and I am deeply shocked.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
She felt her back turning cold from the gaze and she couldn’t attend to arguing with the system, avoiding Xuan Yi’s gaze instead.
“Since the day I finished handing Xuan Bin’s matters, he started calling me that again…however, why do I feel goosebumps rising each time?”
The system hesitated before saying, “…Host, I keep feeling like Xuan Yi seems to have a motive regarding you.”
Ye Yu was speechless and hesitated before asking, “You’re saying that he wants to scheme me?”
The system said nothing.
But in reality, Xuan Yi opened his mouth and said, “It seems like I need to rely on sister Ye Yu’s protection in the future.”
Ye Yu choked.
She, a person who just entered the Youth Realm, needs to protect someone who was only one step away from the Primal Chaos Realm??
She sucked in a breath and faintly smiled, saying, “Of course, I’ll protect you.”
Xuan Yi gazed at her and asked, “Because you like me?”
“…” Ye Yu continued to smile faintly, “Yes, because I like you.”
Thankfully, before the topic made Ye Yu feel even more awkward, the fleet stopped.
The retinues reported from outside. As it turned out, it was nearing the evening and there weren’t any cities or towns suitable for them to stay the night. Therefore, they specially came to ask Xuan Yi if they were going to rest for the night in the approaching city.
Xuan Yi got out of the horse carriage and Ye Yu was the only one inside left.
She rubbed her stiff smiling face and prepared to lean back when she heard the system say, “My host, a new main mission was just put up.”
Hearing this, Ye Yu’s back stiffened. After two seconds, she confirmed that there was nothing going on around the horse carriage and then she took out her phone.
As expected, there was a new message on the screen.
【Main mission: meet Yun Hua again.】
Ye Yu was stunned.
She didn’t even need to specially click on the hyperlink and go back to the e-reader because she was able to remember what was going on in the chapter.
After all, it was a small climax.
According to the storyline, after leaving the palace, Xuan Yi and Ye Yu spent the night in a tavern. When they went upstairs, they encountered a tyrant who was bullying and humiliating the common people. Xuan Yi originally wanted to give them a lesson in secret, but a woman wearing a white veil did so before he could.
That woman was naturally Yun Hua coming to the devil city to gain some experiences.
What a coincidence that while battling the tyrant with cultivation, her white veil fell off and it revealed her true appearance. This led Xuan Yi to recognize the benefactor who had saved him back then.
They had the same goals, so they ended up heading towards the immortal world together. The feelings that had been planted early on sprouted quickly…
What a pity that there was an “annoying” existence — Princess Ye.
After Ye Yu recalled the storyline, she had a very innocent expression on.
This mission wanted her to push along the development of the plot and speed up the time in which the two encountered one another…however, it better not make her a jealous person who became an obstacle for the two.
Thinking of the chilly gaze that Xuan Yi had given her for the past two days from time to time…
Ye Yu felt as if she was still young and could live an extra two years. She didn’t want to die in the male lead’s hands that early.
Ye Yu lowered her head to look at the e-reader which was displaying the “Songshan Tavern” where Xuan Yi and Yun Hua would encounter one another. Then, she glanced at the huge sign displaying “Rugui Tavern” outside the horse carriage. She couldn’t help but hesitate.
It seems like…there’s something wrong with the storyline again?
